My companions enjoyed their meals, I found the food oily and heavy? Didn't come close to the lighter and more flavorful food at Teak and Hot Chilis.

Very disappointed with the food here. To start with, we ordered a thai iced tea each, which was quite diluted and had insufficient milk. You can get better thai tea on any random coffee shop/ eating venue here in Chiang Mai. We then ordered fish cakes, pork larb(salad) , and steamed snapper in lemon spicy sauce.
Fish cakes tasted like normal fish balls with no spice at all... We had better in Sydney.. Pork larb was their saving grace in this meal, it was acceptable. The snapper tasted seriously like basa(cat fish), although the sauce was good. We seriously doubt we were eating snapper ( it was served in fillets).

My recommendation, stay away and go where the locals go if you know your thai food. No offence, but the place was filled with tourists which tells a lot about its authenticity.

Service was friendly and fast, and we don't really bother about ambience for non fine dining venues. Will definitely not return.

Our guest house recommended Lemongrass and it did not disappoint! We stayed in Chiang Mai for 8 days and this was our favorite restaurant, which is saying a lot because all of the Thai food in general was exceptional. The food was amazing and I would definitely go back. It's a great place to take a break from shopping at the nearby night bazaar.

This was an amazing place to eat, right near the night market and food came out quickly. Staff were helpful and friendly. As their signs say out the front of restaurant 'No view, but great taste'

For the people who comment on the decor and table etc, you can see what the place is like before you enter......it's not about the decor.....it is about the great food and friendly staff that make this place awesome.

We will be returning
